and barack obama said that was the top priority but since november 6th, all we have talked about is debt reduction. that wasn't an issue. the words fiscal cliff were never uttered at any point in any one of the three presidential debates and that became the entire conversation for six weeks after the election and now more debt reduction. this is why we have elections to settle these issues. the issue to focus on is jobs. the president had a jobs plan on the table for two years now, the american jobs act. not going to get it passed in full but look at some of the elements of that. let's start to focus on that issue because that's the issue the american people care about. >> i want to play an excerpt of the president's first inauguration. let's play a little bit of what he said. >> today, i say to you that the challenges we face are real. they are serious and they are many. they will not be met easily or in a short span of time. but know this, america. they will be met. >> zachary, the president said that they will be met. the same challenges and many cases, some improvements we have seen
with president obama to talk about what would make it easier to get more jobs in this country, any hints for him? >> cut corporate income tax and dial back on regulations. let entrepreneurs do their thing. they're creative individuals. we can solve all the problems that are in the world through our own creative entrepreneurship and through nonprofit social entrepreneurship and we need to liberate the entrepreneurial spirit and the heroic spirit of business. >> greta: nice to see you and good luck with the book. >> thanks, greta, good to see you, too. >> greta: there's so much more of our interview, you'll find the entire interview on gretawire.com. and made, what did a woman say 24 hours after she allegedly slit her ex-boyfriend's throat in the shower? her friend tells all to the jury and you'll hear it it yourself coming up. and another cheater. is this worse than senator john edwards or lance armstrong? you decide. that's all coming up. r-one office superstore ink retailer in america. now t $6 back in staples rewards for every ink cartridge you recyc when you spend $50 on hp in staples. th was
to the rescue. he has a bill to reverse all of president obama's executive actions. talking points memo obtained senator paul's proposal. there is no mention of a single order in violation of the constitution. not one. maybe these righties just don't know enough about the constitution. perhaps there is someone who could help them out. let's try former bush attorney general michael mukasey. >> it seems to be by definition an abuse of power, a power grab, if you will. no? >> it is -- politically it is a power grab, yes. >> politically is it then unconstitutional in some instances? >> i don't think it's unconstitutional in the sense that i don't think it's something you that could get a court to find unconstitutional. >> uh-oh. it's not the answer hannity was looking for. maybe he should try asking it in a different way. >> so did you think that obama care was unconstitutional? >> did i? >> did you agree with the majority opinion? >> the supreme court said it was unconstitutional. >> you did? >> so you agree with john roberts? >> yes. >> you did. i'm surprised. because in that case -- so through th
're talking about guns. and look, there's an attempt to create the impression that obama and the mean democrats want to take away your guns. very specifically, no one is talking about that. no one wants to do that. and in fact, as i mentioned, the president's view of the second amendment is really quite conservative. he doesn't want to take your guns. he just wants to make this place safe so we don't have newtown massacres every year. >> well, i don't hear democrats talking like this. there's no comparative vernacular we can use that come from the democrats on this. it will be interesting to see if there are any republicans that might step forward and say you know, let's tone it down a little bit. we all know what we want, we don't have to say what has been said so far. karen finney and eugene robinson, great to have you on "the ed show" tonight. thank you so much. remember to answer tonight's question there at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts with us on twitter @edshow and on facebook. we always want to know what you think. coming up, a moment of truth for democrats who
. and david cameron has been talking to president obama about probably sharing their confusion about the situation on the ground, and that very remote part of algeria. leon pan etta has come out, saying he and the rest of the defense department is working around the clock to bring the situation to a happy ending. >> and matthew, another question, and i apologize if you already addressed it, but i'm trying to read the latest details coming out. do we know the number of americans? any clarity on that? >> no, we don't is the short answer to that. we know that there are 41 people according to militants held hostage, and a good number from britain, japan, and the united states as well. exact figures are very hard to come by at the moment. >> yeah, that's actually one of the more disturbing details, right? we don't have the actual information and the united states doesn't know. matthew chance live in london. one more thing here. i am uncertain whether or not there was clarity on that a small number of bp employees unaccounted for at that gas plant in algeria. the company releasing the stat
and i were talking about you think nixon would have some good advice for obama about how to properly do a second term? surely you can't be serious. >> there are such things as negative role models in life and nixon is not a bad one. something we forget about is nixon by this huge majority, one of the biggest in presidential history. yet, no support, you know, two houses of congress, controlled by the democrats so he overreached. he did something called impoundment. he said, democrats can vote all the programs they want. i'm not going to spend the money. even if it's not for watergate, nixon might have been impeached for this. it shows what presidents do when they feel too weak. president obama we heard a couple of weeks ago said i have read the literature on presidents in second terms who overreach and got the message. >> michael, how have second inaugurations historically differed from first inaugurations? >> well, usually it's sort of a somewhat pale echo of the first. you have a first inaugural speech, a big deal, president suggesting the soaring ideas. second one is more limited, mo
bunker. not too bad for a family of four. we're talking about some prime washington real estate at 1600 pennsylvania avenue, the white house. president obama and his family get a rent free deal to live there for the next four years. you could say every american taxpayer owns just a little piece of the white house. felicia taylor, i wanted to talk to you about this. i saw this article in zillow had calculated this morning, just having fun, the white house isn't for sale. in terms of dollars and cents, if someone wanted to buy the white house what do you think it would be worth? >> about a cool $295 million. not such a big price tag. >> please. >> you certainly make enough to afford that, i know. anyway, zillow used public data and recent sales to figure it out. it buys you 50,000 square feet, 132 rooms, and three kitchens because one isn't enough. you got a pool, a movie theater, a bowling alley, that was because of the nixens, they asked for that one, a jogging track, which bill clinton added. the value of the white house got up, though, since obama came into town, up about 7% since 200
's absolutely right. everyone is talking now about al qaeda's new refuge across northern africa but how is the u.s. military, how is the obama administration in this coming up four years going to go after this new al qaeda refuge? these are very remote areas. the u.s. military has very few forces in the region and, look, they are going to need permission of countries to go in there if they are going to go into these places. algeria has made it clear it doesn't want help. and libya is it a country that basically has no coherent national military force, a lot of militias running many parts of libya. so to go after al qaeda, it's a nice set of words but a promise that may be very hard to live up to, wolf. >> certainly will be, barbara. thank you. >>> an american worker at the algerian gas facility tells cnn he escaped on the first day of the siege by islamic terrorists. mark cobb, believed to be a resident of texas, told cnn in a message that he's safe after escaping with some algerian staffers. according to his linkedin pain, he's manager of a joint venture in algeria. >>> other news right now, it
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
